Our volunteers play a vital role speaking to local people about their experiences and giving them opportunities to share their views and ideas for how services can improve.  Many of our volunteers spend time in our community finding out what people think of local services in Bexley and raising awareness of Healthwatch.

We train some of our volunteers to visit health and social care services and report on people's experiences.  You might be observing the services, gathering the views of patients, residents and staff and contributing to reports which highlight your findings.

Whether you want to gain valuable work experience, help improve care in your community or learn new skills, there are lots of ways you can join us to make a real difference.

It has been great volunteering for Healthwatch Bexley.  I have learnt so much about health and care services in the borough and what people think of them.
